Triston McKenzie Cleveland Guardians

Peter has him in the ADL, David. Tim has him in the XFL.

Obviously great brains think alike.

Alex Patton Alex

Off to a good start this year. Looked dominant last night against Houston. 3 hits, 1 bb in 7 innings. He's getting fly balls, as usual. Maybe this year's ball is helping to keep the flies in the park. Pitched 120 innings last year, and I expect the Guardians to be guarded about his work this year.

I noted Rotoman's bid projection on auction day, so McKenzie is a Brainer.

Brendan Donovan St. Louis Cardinals

Brendan Donovan, OF, Cardinals: Of all the prospects the Cardinals have called up this year, none have been as impactful as Donovan. The 25-year-old went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, an RBI and scored the game-tying run in the seventh inning during the Cardinals rally. To cap it all off, he made a diving catch in the top of the 10th inning in right field to preserve a 3-3 tie and set the stage for Paul Goldschmidt’s walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the inning. Overall, Donovan is now batting .340 with a 1.004 OPS since being called up at the end of April.

Luis Gonzalez San Francisco Giants

He again got into the game to throw some BP in the ninth.

Luis Gonzalez (OF) SF - May. 23
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=14845

Gonzalez is not in the lineup Monday against the Mets.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: After starting the last three games, Gonzalez will hit the bench with lefty David Peterson on the mound. He's hit well across 85 plate appearances, maintaining a .324/.376/.459 line.

Alex Patton Alex
JT Brubaker Pittsburgh Pirates

JT Brubaker (P) PIT - May. 23
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=15795

Brubaker allowed one unearned run on five hits and two walks over 6.2 innings in Monday's win over Colorado. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The lone run to score against Brubaker came in the fourth inning following his throwing error. He's given up two or fewer runs in three of his last four starts, lowering his season ERA from 6.20 to 4.64 while posting a 26:9 K:BB during that span.

Alex Patton Alex
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Toronto Blue Jays

In the four games since his one-hit streak ended, he's gone 0-for-14. No strikeouts.

His BABIP before the stat feed is .277.

Alex Patton Alex
Zach Logue Oakland Athletics

I activated him to get his two starts this week.

Rotoworld:

05.24: Zach Logue gave up seven runs in 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Mariners.  (Logue was was able to get six strikeouts, but that's the only remote positive
from this outing. He walked four, gave up three homers, and was chased
in the fifth in his first start back after being recalled from Triple-A.
Logue has had some effective outings, but is a streaming option for
those who feel like taking a risk at best. He's scheduled to square off
against the Rangers on Saturday. )

Alex Patton Alex
Ramon Urias Baltimore Orioles

You made some money if you bet on the Orioles. His homer, which proved to be the winning margin, came off Gerritt Cole on an 0-1 pitch in the sixth. Well struck but an out (maybe a double) in any ballpark except Yankee Stadium. 

In the not-shallow American Dreams, he was on my bench.

05.23: Ramon Urias went 3-for-4 with a homer and a double Monday versus the Yankees. (Urias came into the night with an ugly .207/.258/.298 line, but Statcast
believes he's been one of MLB's unluckiest players based on his strong
48% hard-hit rate this year. Tonight, his luck evened up some; he had
xBAs of .530 on his homer, .260 on his double and .220 on his single.
Most likely, Urias's line will continue to improve, but since he doesn't
steal bases, he's probably not going to amount to much in shallow leagues.)

Alex Patton Alex
William Contreras Atlanta Braves

Had a single and double in four AB.

Rotoworld:

05.23: William Contreras is starting in left field and batting second for the Braves in Monday's series opener against the Phillies. (The
Braves are trying to get Contreras's bat into the lineup more often and
he possesses more athleticism than a typical catcher these days, so
they're going to give him a shot in left field on occasion moving
forward. The 24-year-old backstop has gotten some outfield reps in the
past, including during spring training a few weeks ago, so this isn't a
total surprise. It's a definite boost to his fantasy potential if he's
playing close to everyday in Atlanta.)

Alex Patton Alex
J.D. Davis New York Mets

Rotoworld:

05.24: J.D. Davis went 4-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI on Monday in a blowout victory over the Mets.  (Davis
drove in a pair in the game, and came around to score a couple of runs
for good measure. The 29-year-old has mostly struggled so far at the
quarter-mark of the year, but he doubled in Jeff McNeil in the sixth and
singled home Eduardo Escobar in the ninth. Davis has shown offensive
upside in his career, but is tough to recommend as a fantasy option with
his current role. )

Brandon Hughes up from the depths. We should get his stats with the feed today.

Bobby Hughes Milwaukee Brewers

Need a page for Brandon Hughes, reliever CHI-N, who has started off with a very good K/IP ratio.

Doron Scharf jerome
Christopher Morel Chicago Cubs

I'm tempted to jump on the hot hand, but Morel is young without upper minors experience. Moustakas has been painful for a while now, but I suspect he'll be better.

Peter Kreutzer Rotoman

Rather gamble on him or hang onto Moustakas?

Curt Casali San Francisco Giants

Good one Lynchmob. 

My fave: Eugenio smelling Luis Severino 60 6" away.

Wouldn't this have been better posted under Bartolo?
